US DATA: Initial unemployment claims were below expectations in the 
Sep 8 holiday wk, -1k to 204k vs 209k expected, now the lowest since the 
Dec. 6, 1969 wk. Claims were revised up to 205k from prev 203k in the 
Sep 1 wk. Claims have been below 220k for 10 straight weeks, but could 
bounce up in the coming weeks on the impact of Hurricane Florence and 
other storms. 
- The 4-wk moving avg -2,000 to 208,000 in the Sep 8 wk, the lowest 
since the Dec. 6, 1969 wk (204,500). The avg would fall further next 
week if the headline figure does not change as the 210k level in the Aug 
18 wk rolls out.

comparison is severely tainted by the hurricane impact a year ago.
